Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Teaching Mandarin Chinese in a modern, structured and engaging way, Mastering Chinese is suitable for both classroom and 'teach yourself' learners at all levels. It has a friendly conversational style with useful emphasis on correct pronunciation using pinyin. Introducing fascinating script and essential grammar, the course helpfully uses the script with the pinyin in parallel throughout. With interesting cultural insights and lively illustrations, this is what you would expect from a modern Chinese language course but can't find! Mastering Chinese is also available as two CDs only and Paperback only.
